We are back!

We are back – hopefully everyone had an excellent Canada Day Long Weekend! Our showroom is now open regular hours and local pickup orders are now processing as per normal. Also, any local pickup orders placed during our holiday weekend closure are now available for pickup.

So what do we have planned for the summer? In the coming weeks we have several new tutorials rolling out, a bunch of new products, and maybe a surprise or two – so stay tuned!

Canada Day

Planning to work on a project this coming Canada Day Long Weekend? Just a quick heads up as our showroom will be closed for an extended Canada Day Holiday this year! Online orders will continue to process and ship but local pickup orders will not be available for pickup during this time.

We will be closing our showroom from 5:00PM Wednesday, June 27th to 10:00 AM, Thursday July 5th. During this time we ask anyone wishing to get in touch use Email or Social Media – our phone will not be answered.

Have a safe and happy Canada Day!

New Product Roundup – June 17th to June 23rd

Happy Saturday! We are back with another New Product Roundup! Three more additions to the shop this week – a weatherproof enclosure we use in our Raspberry Pi Weather Station, an excellent starter Solder Station for your workbench, and a new breadboard jumper wire assortment – two times the parts, and a lower price!

Before we have a closer look at each of these new products, a quick note: We will not have a New Product Roundup next Saturday, as it is the Canada Day long weekend. Our showroom will be closed from Wednesday June 27th @ 5PM to Thursday July 5th at 10AM for an extended weekend. Online customers do not need to worry, during this closure orders will continue to process and ship. Have a question? Please feel free to contact us.

Alright – lets have a look at these great new products!

New Tutorial: Raspberry Pi Weather Station (Part 1)

We have a new tutorial up for the Raspberry Pi! This tutorial is the first of a four part series detailing how to build a data logging weather station. The weather station will have a simple online dashboard to view the data and can be customized and expanded upon going forwards. The tutorial is based around our Raspberry Pi Weather Board and uses a variety of sensors we stock. Part two will be available in the coming days – stay tuned!

Raspberry Pi 3+ Starter Kit

New Product Roundup – June 10th to June 16th

Welcome back to another edition of our Saturday New Product Roundup! We have three new products available in the shop this week, including a Media Center version of our always popular Raspberry Pi Starter Kit with a new, lower, price! We also have a new (and strong!) N50 Rare Earth magnet, and a new JST-PH 2 pin male cable.

Before we have a look at each of these new products, just a quick note: With the Canada Day long weekend coming up we will be extending the weekend a little on each side so that we can all enjoy some time off. Our showroom will be closed between June 28th and July 4th, but online orders will continue to ship.

Alright, with that message out of the way – let’s go have a closer look at each of this week’s new products!
